Machine-tools are machines, equipment and systems, which, by means of mechatronic processes, make a tool operate, mainly to shape metal parts. They are associated with advanced manufacturing, productivity and productive innovation in strategic sectors such as automotive, energy and aeronautical sectors. They form the basis for any digital manufacture or Industry 4.0.
Components and equipment form an essential part of the machine-tools where they are integrated. The extensive manufacturing offer of mechanical components must be highlighted, including industrial metal furniture, too.
Accessories are essential elements of a machine-tool that do not form part of its main structure. The availability of a large range of accessories must be highlighted.
Tools are used to extract material from a part in order to carry out a start-up, deformation or abrasion manufacturing process. Noteworthy is the extensive tool production by members companies of AFM.
The automation of production systems is essential to be able to control and automate machinery and/or industrial processes, for optimal competitiveness in the sector. The high variety in production system automation must be underscored.
They are machines, installations, equipment and lines for the execution of other industrial processes. A considerable range of machines, systems and manufacturing technologies are included in this section, as well as installations for turn-key work in different sectors.
